  -g        - get next string from clipboard
  -s        - set current text/result string to clipboard
  -c        - *case sensitive (applies to CMP)
  -i        - case insensitive (applies to CMP)
  -o        - *do not unescape C-style sequences from cmdline strings
  -u        - unescape C-style sequences from cmdline strings
  -e        - *STRIP actions retain linefeeds (CRs and LFs)
  -n        - STRIP actions STRIP linefeeds (CRs and LFs)
  -v        - *verbose output
  -q        - turn off verbose output
  -?        - this help
